A brace of wickets from David Wainwright has helped LV= County Championship Division Two leaders Derbyshire slow down Northamptonshire at Wantage Road.
Northants made a forgettable start after winning the toss, Kyle Coetzer bowled by Tony Palladino in the third over, but Niall O'Brien (41) and David Sales (26) had both made starts before being dismissed by Wainwright as the hosts ended the session on 122 for three.
Ramnaresh Sarwan and Josh Cobb put on an unbroken stand of 52 to lead Leicestershire's recovery against promotion hopefuls Hampshire at Grace Road.
The hosts had slumped to 43 for three, with Kabir Ali taking two wickets, but West Indies batsman Sarwan (29 not out) and Cobb (24no) steadied the ship to take their side to 95 for three.
